Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher doesn't wash dishes properly. I think that it is not getting enough water in the machine. It only allows about an inch of water to get into machine and then starts. I do not think that there is enough water to spin wash arms. I have 40 PSI coming into the house. I am on well water and found debris in the intake orfice. I did my best to flush. Could it still be bad?

Kenmore Dishwasher model 665.1675592 doesn't seem to wash as well as it used to. Seems to have a low water level. Filler valve works, allows water in, but never seems to fill enough. No spray reaches top shelf, I think due to insufficient water level. It's like the timer doesn't stay on long enough for it to fill. Also cycle time seems WAY up, but if the timer is slow, how does it time out filling so fast? Looks like it would be slow all the time. Suggestions?

Dishwasher is not cleaning well, dirty film all over everything, like its not rinsing. In rinse cycle only, some water comes out of lower left port inside but nothing else. Hear a low buzz underneath unit like a motor or pump is energized but no water getting to the top.During normal wash cycle, buzz from underneath seems to cycle on and off, say every minute or so like its cycling on an overload. Do I have a bad pump and if so how do I get to it?


Hi. This may well be a pump issue, or an obstructed hose assembly, as well. Your symptoms are indicating that the impeller may be damaged.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes. I remember finding a mylar like piece in the bottom of the tub and threw it away thinking it came off of something we washed (I know, bad thinking.) The mylar piece measured roughly 3-4inx2in and was folded in half. Anyways....the upper arm does not spin and the detergent doesnt get fully dispensed so dishes dont get fully cleaned. I am guessing not enough water pressure to upper arm. Wou

The water does not get hot enough. I think it's the reason why dishes are not coming out clean. In normal conditions do I need to wash the dishes (like the manager of this apt. complex suggests) before I put them in the dishwasher?


No you need not wash the dishes but just cleaning of the debris and then putting it in the dishwasher for proper cleaning will help you to prevent the drain from getting blocked.\015\012\015\012 \015\012 ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

Bad smell This is more of a general question. When I run the dishwasher there is a bad smell as it fills with water. It comes out of the sink/garbage disposal. I have cleaned out the line that comes from the garbage disposal to the drain and that doesn't stop the smell. Is there a line that needs to be cleaned from the dishwasher to the sink or how can I fix this issue? My dishwasher, at the drain, has water standing and it smells. I think it is there from condensation as the dishwasher, unknow

I have the Siemens SL84A305UC Dishwasher. All of a sudden it stopped cleaning dishes, but everything sounds normal and it fills and drains water, and sounds like it is completing the cycle. In the past when I opened the door while it was actively washing the water would spray out aggressively. Now, when I opened it while it was supposed to be washing I see just a small amount of water coming from the bottom wash blade, and not even enough to turn the blade very far. I thought it was just a c

We have a Sears Ultra Wash III dishwasher, model 665.1677993, bought in October, 1995. It is not filling with enough water to get the dishes clean. I took the water valve out and looked at it and it seems okay. It doesn't look like the valve is opening all the way - just my guess. A small stream of water comes out with good pressure, but it is a small stream. I can't find any screens or filters in the water line coming in. The fill cycle lasts only about a minute. Is that adequate? Steve


There should be another letter after the p in your model number. If it's just a B then there are no parts available for that model. Typically a dishwasher will fill for 90 seconds or more. One minute or less sounds like you have a control board is ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Hi, I have a 3 year old Nemo F&P dishwasher which turns itself on and off for about 3 seconds each on/off continually.Eventually it does get enough water to wash but never goes into the wash cycle properly, ie the water just sits at the bottom. We dont think it's water pressure and it was working fine until recently.Could it be an electrical problem with the signal to fill properly not getting through? Thanks

I have a Frigidaire UC DW Model FDB250RHB2 The unit is not a year old. It is not getting dishes very clean. I read similar posts. I found that there is water coming from top nozzle but not a very impressive stream. It is weak enough that most of the water misses the funnel on top rack. Also not top or bottom arms spin. Last week when i would quick peek during wash cycle there seem to be water coming out of top arm's holes but no spin. We also are getting heavy white staining on glass ware

After running our dishes through a wash cycle we noticed there was still a lot of food stuck on the plates & glasses etc. We cleaned out the trap but due to the murky water in the well, we also pulled out the racks & removed the bottom plate. The underside was greasy and had a lot of grim stuck to it as well as the bottom of the drawer itself. We washed the filter trap, swing arm and plate in the sink. We loaded it with the dishes that previously did not come clean and ran a full cycle. The

We live on an island in the Caribbean and we have a LG dishwasher (model LDF 8812) that has worked fine for a year, but has recently stopped washing effectively. At first, the top part dishes were coming out still soiled from food. Now the bottom part dishes are coming out soiled as well. We checked both the Owner's Manual and the Service Manual and none of the troubleshooting suggestions appear to be relevant to our problem.

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?

I have had an E24 error message on my Siemens freestanding dishwasher. As well as the Error message the the little tap sign lights up too. Up until now the problem has occurred around 1 in 3 attempts and mainly at night but not in the day. When it does work the washer works perfectly and washes well. Today it will not work at all. The error always comes up 2 minutes into any cycle. I've tried turning the water feed off and on and in the past this has worked. It sounds like no water is gettin

Turns on, the entire cycle runs, but no water pumps through the sprayer. There is water present on the bottom....and I can here the water pumping in at the beginning of the cyle....but the dishes are not being 'washed' by the sprayers. I have disassembled and cleaned the entire inside and sprayers to no avail. Im thinking its a pump/motor issue but Im not sure because the sprayers spin, the heat comes on, the detergent dispenses....but no water is being sprayed. Thanks.

I have a Whirlpool which just recently started leaking from the door occasionally and it is most unpredictable. It eventually stops, but before it does it will deposit about a pint of water. I have replaced the float and the float switch, thinking those were the cheapest parts and perhaps the switch was faulty and letting too much water in. That did not work. When this happens I checked the exhaust and hot steam is coming out. Could it be the water inlet valve? If the seal was bad I am ass

Mod #: MDB6600AWB Ser #: 16505148CG No water comes out of spray arms, checked and cleaned filter-OK. Wash impeller is cracked where it slides onto the hexagon rod but it you take the filter flow plate off and put the impeller back on, when you put the unit on rinse only and quickly open the door you can see it is still turning and moving the water. The unit still fills and drains. it just does not have enough force with the impeller to force the water into the spray arms.

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that is not spraying water onto the dishes. I just reset the power, and that didn't help. Putting it on the rinse only or wash cycle fills the bottom with water, but it sounds like a trickle vs. the spray. The heating element comes on and the soap door opens, but there's not spraying. I made sure there was nothing clogging the water line or other parts. What do you think is wrong?

Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB740RC. Not cleaning dishes well. Just in the past couple weeks. When the dishwasher fills with water, how full should it get. When mine fills, it definitely doesn't go up to the element, and just barely makes it to the float switch (not enough to trigger it), makes it to just below the base of it, doesn't come up the side of it at all. Is this normal, or should there be more water. The Water valve has been replaced already.

My Whirlpool Gold Series 980 dishwater no longer fills up with enough water to drive the washing arms, so the dishes do not come out clean. I cleaned the filter on the water intake valve (which was really clogged) and it still did the same thing. Replaced the inlet valve and still no change. The water does not reach the level of the overfill float switch, so that’s not it. Its been working fine for 4-5 years, what else could it be? Thank you.

My kenmore 665 dishwasher will not pump water to the lower and upper spinner arms. The pump entry screen assy seems to have one tear in it and is dirty. However water does come out if I take off the lower arm assy. Is this a sign that the pump is bad and is not pumping enough water to move the arms or is there another problem?


The pump is probably defective (low pressure). Enough to spin the bottom but not the top. ... Kenmore Dishwashers
